This book narrates the journey of a young woman Inaaya, who recently lost her parents and is struggling to rebuild her life while taking care of her grandmother, affectionately called Ammu. Fortunately, she is not alone in her endeavours; her friends, Bani and Saksham, offer their support. Inaaya is tasked with transforming the terrace into an organic garden to grow fresh vegetables for the patients at the Lifeline Hospital, recommended by Uncle Ravi. It is here that she encounters the hospital director, Dr. Agasthya, a brilliant doctor who finds inspiration in her, positively influencing his own life.
I found Inaaya's character to be a bit naive and a bit nosy. She resembles the typical Bollywood movie lead, portrayed as carefree in the storyline, but in reality, she comes across as somewhat dumb. She tends to meddle in everyone's affairs, portraying herself as very kind-hearted and can go to any extent and break rules and regulations to help them, yet she fails to recognize her grandmother's illness, which seems rather foolish. If only the author had chosen a profession for Inaaya that aligned more with her nature, perhaps her nosiness wouldn't have been so pronounced in the story.
Regrettably, the lead failed to make a positive impression on me; she came across as immature. The language and narration, however, are easy to follow and well-constructed. The plot, on the other hand, could use some enhancements. There are additional aspects that struck me as somewhat out of place and illogical, but I prefer not to divulge them to avoid spoiling the story for others. I finished the book in a single day due to its fast-paced nature.
I would recommend this book to teenagers, college students, and new readers. However, avid readers may want to approach it with caution, as there are noticeable loopholes and occasional illogical situations that might detract from the overall experience.
